Tim, You're Supposed to Represent, Not Dis, D.C.

I read today that Tim Gunn (of Project Runway fame) was born and raised in D.C. As a cheering squad for all things stylish in D.C., I was disappointed to read in the interview by Express that Tim wonders how he ever lived here, saying "No one understands fashion at all!"

Tim, you and I can agree that D.C. is short on Chanel jacketed, Christian Louboutin heeled women running down the Metro platform, but let's all remember this:

D.C. is home to some serious indie fashion, much of it born from the world-renowned local music scene here. And fact: Since Unsung first opened its doors to the public, the well-heeled and the hip, young and old, male and female, coiffed and dreadlocked have come out of the woodwork to find our little showroom in an alley.

If people in D.C. don't understand fashion, why do they bother?
